Always awesome

Burgers are always great. The shakes are awesome. The catfish is good too. Get a sundae for a real treat.

My mother loved this place and their hamburgers. It reminds me of the hamburger joint down the road from my grandfathers house. The food is good and you'll have to eat outside or in your car. Worth the trip if you're ever in Benton and craving a hamburger and fries.

The food is great. They make everything to order. They make those great crinkle cut fries. I only wish that they would stay open a little later in the evening.

I was in mood for ice cream with many good flavor but there was limited choice to put on my ice cream. Also ice cream itself isn't taste wonderful.

When it comes to the classic drive-in dairy bar experience it just does not come any better than the Salem Dairy Bar. I've eaten there off and on for years and I'm always glad I stopped by. They have a big menu with everything from burgers, chicken strip baskets, hot dogs to cones, shakes, malts, sundaes and splits. You really... More

While there is nothing spectacular about the salem dairy bar, it was good mostly. The fries were not crisp and were cold. The burgers were small and greasy. The onion rings tasted okay but Sonic's are better. The swirl ice cream was delish but the plain vanilla was not. It used to be a gem not its just kinda rough.

If you miss the days of a drive in burger shop, then this is your place. Just be sure you aren't on a diet, cause it's certainly all the delicious stuff! Takes a little time to get your food, but you know it's cooked to order. Love this place!

Great little burger shop. The burgers are made the way they're supposed to be made. The portions are big and the shakes are so thick the plastic straws flatten, spoons work best. Great any time of year but fantastic on a hot summer day.

Amazing burgers and fries. You can call ahead and pick up. Great small town burger and dairy bar! The lady that takes your money is not the friendliest person and God-forbid you need something other than your food....she will grumble! Lol!
